A stable cutting board


A stable cutting board
As soon as you have something to cut in the kitchen, the best thing to do is to use a cutting board, it protects your table or work surface, and their material is made to protect the edge of your knife, that is to say that it is soft enough, in short it is the ideal thing.

But simply put on the work surface, they have an annoying tendency to move.

A stable cutting board
This is especially the case if you have a quality one, but it's sometimes the case for slightly cheaper boards, you've noticed that they don't have legs, they're really "boards", in the sense: a rectangular piece without really a top or bottom.

And as a result, when you put it on your work surface, you have an almost immediate soapy effect, it slides or moves as soon as you start cutting on it, which is quickly a pain in the ass.

How to avoid this ?


Very simple, do as the pros do: Fold a cloth in half and slide it under your board, don't let anything stick out. The cloth acts as a kind of shock absorber that prevents the board from slipping, it remains firmly in place throughout your cuts.

In short: To prevent your cutting board from moving during your cuts, slide a cloth folded in half underneath.

Preserving egg yolks
Preserving egg yolks
If you're using only the egg whites in a recipe (such as meringues ), you'll need to store the yolks until you're ready to use them again. There's nothing very complicated about this in principle - all you have to do is chill them, but there are a few pitfalls to be avoided in practice.

Preservative oil, an asset for taste
Preservative oil, an asset for taste
When you prepare a dish using an ingredient that has been preserved in fat, for example a springtime mixed salad with tuna in oil or sun-dried tomatoes, you're probably going to make a french dressing (vinaigrette) next. In that case, why not use the preserved oil from the tuna or tomatoes?

The secret of cooking until "done"
This is a real chef's skill: being able to look at a fish fillet cooking and say, "Stop – that's enough, it's cooked". I always admire this ability to see at a glance if something is done. It is what sets the professionals apart from us mere amateurs. And it's true that how fish is cooked is...
